My first Diva challenge – BLIND STRING

31 Aug

So I’ve been Dying to do one of those challenges for ages, but have dismissed my thoughts of doing so, for fear that I was nowhere near good enough.
Still I like a challenge and being totally addicted to this new form of art where mistakes are just another opportunity, I feel I need to take it a step further πŸ™‚

Plus my fear of ‘not being good enough’ would seem to be completely unfounded as i have had many amazingly glowing comments on the work I have posted on Facebook so far…. *sheepish grin*

The brief for this week was ever so simple. Close your eyes, and draw a string. Hence “Blind String“. If you’re not sure what a string is, here is a basic definition: “At it’s most basic a string is generally a random line drawn in pencil which creates an area within which you draw your tangles”

So.
Here is my Blind String.

And *FANFARE* *drumroll* this is what I did with it….

    You are so right when you say you shouldn’t worry for your new addiction shows in your delicate and beautiful piece of art! Your string gave you so much to work with and you went for it to create a fabulous flowing zentangle!

    Have a look at Carl Jung’s mandalas and you may see similarities.
